SEREMBAN: Thirteen Chinese nationals from Wuhan working on the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project who went home for Chinese New Year have been told not to return to Malaysia until further notice.

Malaysia Rail Link Sdn Bhd (MRLSB) chief executive officer Datuk Seri Darwis Abdul Razak said this was in line with a move by the government to impose a temporary ban on Chinese citizens from Wuhan city and the surrounding Hubei province.

"We actually came up with an emergency response plan before Chinese New Year on this.

"Their absence will not in any way affect work on the ECRL here," he told reporters at the state land office in Seremban 2 near here.

MRLSB had formed a joint venture with China Communications Construction Company to operate and maintain the 640km ECRL project.

Any profits will be shared on a 80:20 basis between MRLSB and CCCC respectively.
